pMany Roads" conference welcomes alumnae; 
[pa nel exam ines value of Wellesley education 

NOVEMBER 15, 1974 


~b fNancy Mcligue '77 

-|-|, e role of women in the work- 
., world and the relevancy of a 
jhaal arts education set the 
heme of the discussion as an im- 
jftssivc panel of Wellesley alum- 
E opened "Many Roads," the 
.ond all-college careers con- 
science Sunday night, November 


The panelists included Francille 
usun Wilson, '69. Maria 
psanov Tyler. '52. Phyllis 
apiro Sewell, '52, Patricia 
uber, '45, Laurel Furumoto of 
Psychology Department, and 
arrict Segal Cohen '28 as 
oderalor. Ms. Furumoto replac- 
Naomi Wcisslein who was un- 
it to attend the conference. 
College President Barbara 
Jewell welcomed the alumnae 
ith a brief address and corn- 
ended them on their 
enlevements in a diversity of 
that was reflective of 
ellesley. It was necessarily brief, 
ihe explained, since she too had 
mbined a family with a career, 
she needed to return home to 
er daughter. 

The relevancy of a Wellesley 
ral arts education was discuss- 
by some members of the panel. 
"I graduated from Wellesley 
ith little factual information but 
earned a fearlessness at attacking 
Information. Wellesley offers a 
readth of knowledge and a flex- 
lility that teaches one to cope 
ith the unending learning 
rocess of a career. Specialists are 
asy to come by, but a good 
iberal arts education is a rare 
Ireasure." staled Patricia Lauber 
45. Before devoting her lime to 
free-lance writing, Ms. Laubcf had 
unli/ed her English major as the 
unding editor and editor-in- 
hicf of "Science World." 
But Maria O, Tyler '52, Senior 
[Economist of the Monetary Fund, 

Phyllis S. Sewell, right and Maria O. Tyler, center, listen as Francille R 
of Many Roads, Sunday, November 10. 
said that a Wellesley degree gave ticipating in workshops and dis- 

one an educated outlook, but not 
a job. A Wellesley education is of 
future value, as graduate work is 
necessary to train one for a career. 

The panel continued to discuss 
their personal means of coping 
with their careers, and answered 
questions from the students and 
alumnae in the audience. 

The panel kicked off the three 
day conference, sponsored by the 
Office of Career Services, and 
made possible through the 
Carolyn Wilson fund. Ap- 
proximately fifty alumnae from a 
wide range of vocations and areas 
attended the conference, par- 

cussions. The alumnae lived and 
ate in the dorms during the con- 

On Monday morning, panel 
discussions on career oppor- 
tunities in particular fields were 
moderated by the alumnae. Stu- 
dent attendance at this panel, as at 
the afternoon and evening sessions 
ranged from sparse to moderate. 

The afternoon's workshops 
focused on some of the problems 
encountered by women with 
careers, including the transitions 
from academic life to "the real 
world," combining a marriage 
with a career, the decision to go

tion of volunteer positions. 

Individual academic 

departments sponsored programs 
Monday night with department 
alumnae. One of the more 
energetic demonstrations was 
given by dance specialist Lucy 
Venable '48 for the Department of 
Physical Education. 

Carol Glcsmann '47 addressed 
a meeting of Chemistry 103, as 
she and other alumnacs guest lec- 
tured in some classes on Tuesday

had adopted its newly drawn con- 
slitution. The constitution, 
presented by Tricia Blackburn, es- 
tablished the American Studies 
Club as a group concerned with 
offering its members oppor- 
tunities for discussion and study 
of America from the perspectives 
,,l rnan) academic disciplines. 

Spillers' topic dealt with the 
victimization of the Black 
preacher in history. The Black 
sermon as an image maker and 
mirror was expanded on in an ac- 
companying discussion by students 
and faculty into a broader theme: 
the significance of looking al sub- 
cultures in order to recognize the 
dominant culture in America 
This significance has broad 
application to a complex culture 
that is continually in flux. The 
Afro-American experience and 
other major ethnic groups pene- 
irute and transform the dominant 
American culture. Experiences 
such as the Afro-American are 

tests of the fundamental pre- 
suppositions of American culture. 
The United Stale constitutes an 
extraordinary experiment in the 
history of human affairs, every 
American is a part of that experi- 
ment and should feel compelled to 
delve into the different elements 
that comprise the American 

To further elaborate on the 
need to investigate different 
aspects that make up the 
American whole, Ms. Spillers 
urged those present to attend 
Father John Bryant's church in 
Cambridge in order to better un- 
derstand the Black sermon. 
William Scott of the Black 
Studies department berated the

courses the Black Studies depart- 
ment offers and he reinforced

Fast For a World Harvest is the 
theme of Oxfam. an international 
humanitarian organization's fast, 
on Thursday. Nov. 21. Beginning 
with dinner Wednesday night, 
Nov. 20. concerned Wellesley 
students are asked lo fast for 24 
hours, as a part of the Oxfam 
sponsored nationwide fast. 

The purpose of this fast is: to 
identify with the world's poor: to 
consider the continuing practice 
of one meatless day a week: and to 
join with others in serious discus- 
sion and purposeful action about 
the world food problem. 

news media: 

ed with marital, romantic, sexual, 
and familial problems — and, to 
make it worse, even these 
problems arc most oflen not 
presented very seriously. Each 
week, one can see hundreds of ser- 
vile, auxiliary, silly female 
characters, smiling away as if they 
are totally satisfied and finding 
their greaiesi fulfillment us wives 
and/or mothers. 

Another panelist said that, in 
her opinion, entertainment shows 
are much more "dangerous" than 
documentary and public service 
programs. This is because, when 
watching a typical situation com- 
edy, for example, the viewer can 
easily forget the powerful impact 
that the media has on him. and 
therefore he is more susceptible to 
that impact. 

In general, television insults, 
degrades, demeans, m is- 
represents, and excludes women. 
A central question is: Does televi- 
sion reflect reality or does it 
redesign reality? It reflects reality 
to (he extent that, in the real 
world, women are degraded, 
demeaned, misrepresented, and 
excluded. Even in cartoons, ihe 
adult females are outnumbered by 
adult males. 4 to I. And females 
in cartoons are usuully secretaries, 
teachers, nurses, entertainers, or 
witches Certainly this reflects 
real world values of standard sex-

Letters to the Editor 

Food for Thought 

Not everybody is satisfied with the College's current 
meal plan. Grumbles about food quality are frequent and 
apparently inevitable, but there are more substantial com- 
plaints — ones that merit attention now. 

At this time Wellesley's 1,804 resident students have no 
choice of board plans. A 21 -meal plan is offered on a take- 
it-or-leave-it basis. Many students do not eat three meals a 
day everyday, so the participation rate is approximately 
67%. This absenteeism is considered when the total board 
plan is considered with the result that, according to Ms. 
Elizabeth Cornwall, director of the Department of Food 
Services, students pay for about 15 meals a week, rather 
than the 21 to which they are entitled. 

For some students that apparently is a pretty good deal, 
but there are others who don't think so. They demand a 
more flexible system — one that will cater to individual 
schedules and needs, rather than the present one which 
forces a student with different eating habits to pay costs 
over and above the required combined room and board 

A choice of board plan (something that is offered by 
many schools) would certainly seem to be more equitable 
for every student. A possible range of meal ticket plans 
might include 21, 15, 14, or 7 meals a week. It is true that, 
as the number of meals offered in a plan decrease, the cost 
per meal increases due to the higher participation rate. A 
student on a 7-meal-a-week plan is more likely to eat every 
meal lo which she is entitled than is a student on a 21- 
meal-a-week plan. Nonetheless, the overall cost to the stu- 
dent on such a plan would be lower. Discrepancies in cost 
could be eliminated. 

The Foods Services Department is not about to initiate 
an} change from the present plan. Any moves toward that 
must come from the students. 

This is not to say that the Department is unresponsive to 
student requests. Recent innovations have shown that it 
does try lo comply with student needs. Two entrees are 
offered at lunch and dinner, longer serving hours have 
been implemented, and there is a continental breakfast on 
weekdays. Another evidence of its open attitude is the 
current effort to expand the number of student food 
representatives from each dorm and meet with them more 

Student feedback need not be directed to Food Services 
only through these dorm representatives. The Residential 
Policy Committee has formed a subcommittee to consider 
the question of board plans for next year. Because of the 
pressing priority of winter term operationalization, the 
committee has not yet met. However, they plan to meet 
soon because they face a deadline of February for any 
proposals. Members of this subcommittee are Susan 
Wright, Cazenove; Gail. Silver, Claflin; Kathy Darcy, 
Stone: and A.J. Johnson, Shafer. 
The channels are there. Use them. 

Erratic attendance of members 
Impedes proceedings of Senate 

In a year when student activism and awareness are 
necessities, it is particularly important for student leaders 
to view their positions with responsibility. There are, un- 
fortunately, some glaring examples of irresponsibility 
among members of Senate. 

Some Senators have developed unfortunate habits: 
arriving late to meetings and leaving before the meetings 
have officially terminated. Under a special quorum rule 
passed by Senate last year, once a quorum is established at 
the beginning of a meeting, it remains established until the 
meeting is adjourned, regardless of the attrition of 

This often means that new business at the end of Senate 
agenda is voted on by twenty Senators or less. Some of the 
legislation passed by Senate under these conditions involve 
substantial sums of money which merit the consideration 
ol a lull Senate. 

Of a more serious nature is the erratic attendance of the 
C hiel Justice. One reason why Senate meetings seem in- 
terminable is that there is no regular parliamentarian to 
rule on Senate proceedings. 

Erratic attendance by Senate Exec members is as in- 
tolerable as the faulty attendance of regular Senators, 
particularly when such behavior impedes the smooth 
progress of the admittedly rocky Senate meetings 

The Reserve Room at the Library has instituted a new 
loan system as the result of a two-week poll of students 
Smcc Monday. November II, the following regulations

definitely offensive.

"Who were they?" They were 
Bill Bokom and Joan Marcus — a 
professional pianist singer duo 
that cost SI 750.00 "Why so 
much?" The fee for the perfor- 
- mancc itself was about S800 (Ihe 
same as any olher fee that the 
Schneider Board of Governors 
would pay for Friday nighl enter- 
tainment) and the balance was air 
transportation from the Midwest 
lo Boston. But it is most impor-

diture was not made by the 
Schneider Board of Governors — 
the Lecture Policy Committee 
paid for a third of the total bill. 

If. after attending the perfor-

name of the group, the lapse of

was not attended by Ihe gigantic 
crouds that mixers attract, but to 
say thai there was a "ho-hum at-

"sit-back and enjoy" feeling thai 
Ihe tunes of Gershwin, Cole

should nol be confused with lack 
of interest — the spectators en-

Ad insults 

To the Editor: 

I am becoming increasingly dis- 
appointed in the image the NEWS 
portrays through its advertising as 
each issue is produced. Despite 
the letters regarding the dis- 
satisfaction with the "Liberated 
Woman" ad, you printed an ad- 
ditionally insulting one on behalf 
ol Hathaway House. The declara- 
tion of the "fascinating men" that 
can he met (here and ihe sugges- 
tion of going to Hathaway House 
explicitly for this purpose is 
nothing less than degrading. 

I feci betrayed by the bookstore 
which is so closely associated with 
Wellesley and which should 
regard ihe responsibility of 
representing us as a student body 
much more seriously. Even worse, 
that the NEWS should accept 
such an ad is thoroughly dis- 
couraging and makes me question 
Ihe values or both these service 
and their interpretation of a 
Wellesley student. 

I never thought that as i 
member of the Wellesley com- 
munity I would continue to 
receive ihe same degredalion as II 
woman thai is all too present 
throughout the world. I expected

of either the existing system or the new one. 

Since the vote was 5 lo 4 in favor or a change, with 
about \5% favoring elements from both systems the 
change is on a trial basis. Once the College community 
has had a chance to live with the new Reserve system 
there will be another poll, scheduled for the first two 
weeks in March. 

The projected questionnaire will present choices 
among several components or Reserve book circulation 
- length of daytime loan, length or overnight loan, etc 
Although .t is clear that personal preferences preclude 
satisfying everyone, it is hoped that the system with the 
widest appeal can be determined.

evicw. Winter /Spring 1974. 

In a way, il was all summed up 
a recent Herblock cartoon. The 
ife of a former National Securi- 
iy Council staffer, on reading 
about NSC members being 
iretapped remarks to her 
usband: "See dear, and you 
.ought the President was not in- 
vested in what you had lo say." 
n my case it turned out that the 
president — and his colleagues — 
were indeed interested. So curious 
were they that the tap on my 
home phone, installed while I 
worked on the NSC staff, rcmain- 
[ed on for more than 16 months 
fier I left the government. Daily 
nd later weekly reports of what 1 
nd others said were funneled by 
Edgar Hoover directly to the 
hile House. 

Now, with the assistance of the 
CLU. I and my family are suing 
issingcr. Haig, Haldeman, 
Erlichman, Mitchell, Sullivan, un- 
n.imcd FBI agents, and the 
[Chesapeake and Potomac 
elcphone Company. We brought 
uit under the provisions of the 
968 Omnibus Crime Control 
let, which provides for statutory 
lamages of $100 for each day an 
illegal surveillance is carried on. 
n my case, that's over 600 days. 
What the FBI heard on my line, 
issingcr has attested publicly, 
ist no doubt on my loyalty or 
iscretion. Although our efforts to 
[obtain copies of the summaries of 
ur phone conversations have not 
el been successful, it is possible 
o guess at what they may have 
bund interesting enough to keep 
he reports coming for 22 months 
all: conversations on the 
riphery of the Muskie presiden- 
tial campaign, discussions about 
hat Clark Clifford should do to 
asten American withdrawal from 
ielnam, efforts at the time of the 
Cambodian invasion to form a 
ilizens' group to oppose the war, 
y patient and on the whole 
ruitless efforts to convince 
nyone who would listen that Nix- 
n was headed for escalation in 

All this suggests an answer to 
he first of 3 questions I am often 
ked: "Why was your phone 
pped?" The second question, 
'Why are you suing?" and the 
•hird, "How is the lawsuit coming 
and what arc you learning from it 
bout federal wiretapping?" also 
rve some comments. Readers 
°f The Civil Liberties Review will 
not find it strange that I, my wife 
Ina, and our three sons are suing 
•hose who violated our con- 
stitutional right to privacy. But in 
the world of Washington and the 
astern foreign policy establish- 
ment the situation is quite 
I different.- In that milieu, suing the 
wrelary or State is considered 
■aboo, particularly when he is seen 
« the only effective figure in a

Watergate. More generally, one

Nor do.l have any doubt that 
Henry Kissinger was personally 
involved. Kissinger asserts that he 
only supplied some names to the 
FBI of those on his staff who had 
access to information that was 
leaked. I do not believe him. I do 
believe the president, who said, 
thai Kissinger (along with 
Mitchell and Hoover) chose those 
to be lapped. In fact, Kissinger 
sent my name to the FBI, re- 
questing the surveillance: he did 
not provide the names of those 
who had access to the details of 
the bombing of Cambodia — the 
leak which allegedly triggered the 

Some have suggested to me that 
when I became a government of- 
ficial and accepted a lop security 
clearance I gave up my right to 
privacy. I can only say thai I was 
not aware of having done so, 
never intended to do so, was never 
told thai I had. and do not believe 
thai a person who works for the 
governmenl should be required to 
waive this constitutional right. 
While the government has put 
forward a number of bizarre 
claims in response to my suit, it 
has nol asserted thai government 
employment constitutes a waiver 
of the Fourth Amendment right to 
be secure againsl unreasonable 
searches and seizures. 

How is the suit coming, and 
what have we learned so far about 
how the FBI taps phones and 
about the "Kissinger" taps in par- 
ticular? We began our lawsuit, 
perhaps as Archibald Cox should 
have done in his pursuit of the 
While House tapes, by asking the 
court lo take custody of all the 
documents in the case. The Justice 
Department, which is representing 
all the defendants (save the 
telephone company) in their of- 
ficial capacities, and Kissinger, 
Haig. and Sullivan in their per- 
sonal capacities as well, respond- 
ed with an affidavit from the 
director of the FBI assuring the 
court that he had possession of the 
documents and would maintain 

Judge John Lewis Smith was 

well aware of the bizarre move- 
ment of these documents. They 
had been laken from the FBI to 
Ihe White House, for fear that 
Hoover would ase them lo 
blackmail the president, and were 
returned lo the FBI only after 
William Ruckelhaus wrestled 
with the Secret Service. Judge 
Smilh was unpersuaded. 
Paraphrased (from memory 
without the benefit of the 
transcript), ihe exchange went 
something like Ihis: 

documents disappeared once, 
didn't they Mr.Christenbury? 

CHRISTENBURY: Yes sir. but 
il will not happen again. 

JUDGE SMITH: Well. I think 
I'd belter have them. 

So we had the documents under 
seal in the court — the request for 
a lap, Ihe summaries prepared for 
Nixon, Kissinger, and Mitchell, 
memos aboul Ihe lap, and reports 

on the operation. Next came the 
government's answer lo the com- 
plaint. In a detailed response, the 
Justice Department admitted thai 
my home phone was tapped 
without warrant from May, 1969 
until February. 1971. My conver- 
sations were overheard and 
recorded, as were those of my wife 
and three sons. There was no 
evidence that I had any connec- 
tion with a foreign power. Yet the 
government asserts that the tap 
was legal because of the inherent 
powers of the president to install 
"national security wiretaps." 

From the government's 
response and from William 
Ruckelhaus's informative deposi- 
tion on Ihe eve of his becoming 
deputy attorney general, we learn- 
ed the ways in which the 
procedures followed in my case 
and (hal of the other Kissinger 
taps differed from the normal 
procedures for warrantless

The Uneasiness of 
Dealing with Racism 

... OP-ED ... 

by Dennis M. Lynch 

M.I.T. Graduate Student 

in Civil Engineering 

There is a feeling that has been 
brewing within me for some lime 
now. Il troubles me and makes 
me uneasy, but I haven't quite 
known how to express this un- 
easiness. This "Forum on 
Racism" gives me the opportunity 
lo express my thoughts, and 
hopefully receive some response. 

Recently, there have been a 
number of occurranccs in my life 
which have tones of racism, out- 
right or otherwise. Let me briefly 
sketch these experiences, and then 
sum up my thoughts on racism. 

During Rush Week, my frater- 
nity is open to all new un- 
dergraduate students al MIT. All 
male visitors arc potential 
members of the fraternity. We 
have never in my experience (since 
1968) excluded anyone from the 
house because of race, creed, or na- 
tional origin. We rushed one Black 
this year — an incredible guy. 
we all wanted him lo join. In the 
end he didn't join our house, and 
mentioned something about "los- 
ing my identity as a Black." A 
friend of mine in another house 
related a similar slory lo me, with 

Prof, won Nobel Peace Prize in '46 
After losing her Wellesley appointment 

by Kathy Brownback '74 

Twenty-eight years ago today, 
Ihe Nobel Committee announced 
in Oslo the award of the Nobel 
Peace Prize lo eighty-year-old 
Emily Greene Balch, long-time 
Wellesley resident and former 
professor of political economy at 
Wellesley College. Miss Balch 
was the second American woman 
ever to win Ihe peace prize. 

The Nobel award is given for 
"the mosl or best work for the 
brotherhood of nations, the-aboli- 
lion and reduction of standing ar- 
mies, and for the formation or 
popularization of peace con- 
gresses." Miss Balch was 
recognized for her work with the 
still active Women's International 
League for Peace and Freedom 
(WILPF). the group which grew 
out of the International Congress 
of Women held at The Hague in 
1915. Among the 42 American 
women who set sail on the Noor- 
dam in April, 1915 to take part in 
this peace conference were Emily 
Batch, Jane Addams, and Carrie 

Deciding who should stay at Wellesley 

by Debra S. Knopman '75 

Tenure, reappointments, and 
promotions are the business of the 
entire college community since it 
is this process that sets the quality 
and reputation of the institution. 
Attracting a complementary stu- 
dent body is ihe reward of having 
assembled a highly qualified 
facully. Good students follow a 
good faculty. (The situation rarely 
lakes place in the reverse.) 

When dealing with the question 
of who should slay al Wellesley. 
the matter of priorities in 
decision-making is nol very clear. 
Although students are transients, 
they are also the mosl direct 
recipients of an individual's 
talents (or lack of). We are often 
informed by the powers (hat be 
thai students do not always know 
who or what is good for them. 
Popular instructors are often 
thought to he those who grade 
easily, give out extensions, and de- 
mand little outside work. None of 
these things have very much bear- 
ing on the education received, 
even if 

they were the primary 
[naand l' learned I of the tap.' as wc reasons lor popularity. Is M.I.T. 

"stened to network news on our 
^f radio, it has seemed lo us a 
"Bnl and necessary thing to do. 

'n my view, a warrantless tap 

[ 0n my phone would have been il- 

[Jgal even if put on for the 

"ali Qna ( security purpose" 

an inferior institution to Wellesley 
because a significant number of 
their professors practice these 
"bad ways?" 

Facully and administrators 
should realize ihai students might 
(though nol in every case) know 
more lhan lliev do about who is a 

good teacher. Often, the further 
one gets in a field, ihe less one 
remembers the initial difficulties 
in learning. We are paying for the 
privilege of learning from these in- 
dividuals. When an instructor 
walks into a class unprepared or 
hastily reads a paper a student 
spent hours writing or is incapable 
of answering a question, thai in- 
structor does not weather the tide 
of student opinion very well. 

On the other hand, a rigorous, 
demanding instructor who ob- 
viously takes pride in the stimula- 
tion and coherency of a lecture, 
who expects a reasonable stan- 
dard of excellence for an un- 
dergraduate, and who treats the 
student as an intellectual equal 
usually is considered a good in- 
structor. Granted, there are other 
considerations when determining 
who should stay, such as field of 
expertise and number of 
publications. But Wellesley claims 
to be in the business of teaching. 
That should place student opinion 
al a high position on the record of 
an instructor. 

This leads inevitably to the 
question of what students can do 
to influence tenure and reap- 
pointments decisions. The man- 
datory student evaluation forms

Chapman Catt. Emily Balch and 
five other leading members of the 
Congress look a specific plan of 
mediation, then known as the 
Wisconsin Plan, lo neutral and 
belligerent heads of state, urging 
(he formation of a continuous 
conference of neutrals (well before 
ihe Fourteen Points and the Cove- 
nant of the League of Nations 
drew up similar proposals). The 
Inlernatinal Congress urged such 
general proposals of peaceful 
resolution of conflict as the 
reft/sal to recognize the right of 
conquest, refusal of autonomy 
and democratic parliament to not 
people, bringing social, moral, 
and economic pressure to bear on 
countries resorting to armed con- 
flict, placing foreign policy under 
democratic control, and granting 
women full political rights. 

Throughout Miss Balch's 
career, she worked as a private 
citizen for peace. Partly because 
of her work at Denison House in 
Roxbury, she pressed for recogni- 
tion of the problems of im- 
migrations and poverty as essen- 
tial barriers to international 
peace. At Wellesley College, she 
viewed her role as professor of 
political economy as one of en- 
couraging students to realize and 
express their social responsibility 
through informed social and 
political action. 

In 1919, after more than 20 
years of teaching at the College. 
Miss Balch's contract was not 
renewed by the Board of Trustees 
of the College for much debated 
reasons related to her pacifist ac- 
tivities. She then turned to full- 
time peace work. She became in- 
ternational secretary-treasurer of 
the WILPF in Geneva. During 
this time she pressed for im- 
mediate action on arms 
limitations, more effective use of 
the League of Nations, 
recommendations on the alloca- 
tion and use of mandates, inler- 
nulional pressure againsl postwar 
political reprisals, and depor-

the feeling that our efforts have 
not been unreasonable. On the 
contrary, I have the impression 
lhat although the world was not 
ready lo recognize them, the trend 
of development runs obviously 
and unmistakeably toward the 
end thai we have sought — a 
planetary civilization. Our 
planetary barbarism is. I have

In 1925. Agnes Perkins and 
Etta Herr built the house al 17 
Roanoke Road in Wellesley (just 
off Dover Road), and when Emily 
Balch returned from Geneva she 
lodki up residence here and con- 
tinued active membership in the 
WILPF. During the years 
between the two world wars, she 
directed ihe League's study of 
U.S. Marine-occupied Haiti, a 
document which presented detail- 
ed first-hand observations of 
economic and political conditions 
and outlined concrete recommen- 
dations for American policy. 
Among them were plans for 
American troop withdrawal and 
restorations of Haitian sell- 
government. Miss Balch sought 
implementation of the League's 
earlier plan of continuous media- 
tion and wrote many articles in 
support of nonviolent change in 
the posl-war economic and 
political order. She was also es- 
pecially active in personally secur- 
ing affidavits needed for entry into 
the U.S. for hundreds of racial, 
political, and religious refugees 
seeking freedom from increasing 
intolerance in Europe prior to 
World War II. 

Perhaps because Emily Balch 
worked through largely unofficial 
channels, she is less well-known lo 
Wellesley residents than her ac- 
complishments might indicate. 
But her efforts on behalf of the in- 
ternational rights of individuals

I am a Big Brother lo a 
fatherless boy in South Boston. 
He was kepi from school for three 
weeks this semester by his mother 
(he was lo be bused to Columbia 
Point). I tried to find the reason 
by talking to her and to other 
mothers in the neighborhood. It 
seemed lhat there was a touch of 
racism, but mostly there was just 
plain fear of injury to their 
children. In the last week things 
have quieted down, and David has 
attended school. He loves it! He- 
has made a number of new 
friends, mostly Black. People 
seem to be trying at his school, 
and things are working. 

A friend of mine is attending 
Williams College this semester, 
where she has a Black suite-mate. 
They seem to have developed 
some rapport, and gel along well, 
except when the suite-mate is 
among other Blacks, in which 
case ihe only exchange is an ab- 
breviated "Hi." I have talked lo 
the suite-male in the privacy of 
Ihe suite, and she has been friend- 
ly to me also, but I recognize that 
I don't know exactly what to talk 
aboul. Further. I am fearful of 
saying the "wrong thing." 

My fraternity played the Black 
Student Union in a football game 
three weeks ago. Both learns had 
a chance lo win the Intcrmural 
trophy, so their hearts were really 
in ihe game. During Ihe game 
tempers flared (as the) always do 
when emotions are high), bul 
(here seemed lo be real hate dis- 
played. Some of the guys in my 
house were really brulallizcd. You 
can lalk lo either learn, and ihey 
will say they were merely 
retaliating, or trying lo keep the 
levels of respect on an even keel. 
These tactics go on in all high- 
level intcrmural games, bul when 
the game is over there are usually 
congratulations, conciliations and 
renewed friendships. However, 
this game ended with the question. 
"Why?" troubling my fraternity 
brothers. They don't want to hale. 
but there is still the uneasiness 
thai no one knows how to deal 

This morning as I studied in m\

background a record called

tears in my eyes. (This record is 
an emotional joining of the pop- 
ular hit by Jackie deShannon. and 
of Dion's "Abraham, Martin and 
John") I asked myself how I 
could be moved so. and nol do 
anylhing. Then I asked, what do 
these three men stand for. To me 
they were all fighters for freedom, 
for all men. They did it out of 
love, not for the selfishness of per- 
sonal gratification. They saw thi.s 
as a great country, where we all 
have something to contribute, no 
matter what our background. If 
wc just contribute our love lo all 
around us and stop noticing 
differences ... and start noticing 
that we're all humans with 
something to offer 

Separatism is the means by 
which many Blacks deal with 
racism. It enables them to affirm 
their self-confidence, lo believe in 
themselves as Blacks.

Profs hear student complaint: 
Unfair housing in January 

by Lin Frackman '76 

Ellen Myer '76 addressed 
Academic Council on Thursday 
on (he question of housing during 
Winter Term. The Winter Term 
Committee has decided that if 
enough students sign up for 
Winter Term, the Batcs-Frecman- 
McAfee complex will be used to 
house them. Ellen, a resident of 
Freeman, said that she was 
representing a group of students 
who feel that the Administration 
has neglected its responsibility to 
(he student body by failing to es- 
tablish equitable housing. 

The first problem is that Winter 
Study Term involves no academic 
credit and costs each student 
SIOO. Thus, it is discriminatory 
against those students who cannot 
afford to come back, since no 
financial aid is available. In addi- 
tion, the residents of Bates. 
Freeman and McAfee, will be 
forced to completely pack up their 
rooms in the same 4-day reading 
period that every other student 
has tree to study. 

They will also be forced to 
accept responsibility for anything 
broken or stolen by the temporary 
resident, since the Administration 
refuses to accept responsibility 
and as yet there are no plans for a 
contract between the residents. 
Ellen emphasized that her group 

does not want to crush enthusiasm 
for Winter Term, but they do 
want a responsible residential 

Mrs Just, Assistant Professor 
of Political Science, asked for a 
definition of responsible residence 
policy. Ellen responded that she 
was not sure but that if no one 
wants to give up her room on 
campus, the Winter Term Com- 
mittee should consider holding up 
Winter Term until next year, 
when this can be more carefully 
worked out. 

Abby Franklin '75. Chief 
Justice, pointed out that in the 
past dormitories have been ar- 
bilrarils -elected to house 
students during vacations, Avis 
Russell '76, Senate rep to 
Academic Council, replied that 
just because an action has prece- 
dent it is not necessarily right. 

Mrs. Leflkowitz. Associate 
Professor of Classics, asked that 
Mr. Gold, who is the faculty ad- 
visor to the Winter Term Com- 
mittee report back to Academic 
Council when t 1 students com- 
plaints have been .onsidered by 
the committee. 

Mrs. Putnam, Associate 
Professor of Philosophy, 
emphasized that Winter Term as 
it stands now is clearly dis- 
criminatory because ol the ques- 
tion of financial aid. Sherry Zitter 

'77, student representative on the 
Winter Term Committee, 
responded that they are trying to 
budget Winter Term as tightly as 
possible so as to eventually make 
scholarships available. 

Mary Ellen Ames, Director of 
Admissions, presented a proposul 
to Academic Council to change 
the Articles of Legislation per- 
taining to admissions. Because of 
the increase in the number of 
applications and the introduction 
of the Early Evaluation 
procedure, the Board recommend- 
ed that the reading team for 
applications be changed from four 
readers to three and that the 
Board be increased by one faculty 
member and one student. The 
Board also recommended a new 
procedure to handle controversial 
cases, whereby the case will be 
referred for reconsideration to a 
subcommittee made up of the 
most experienced members of the 

Ms. Claudia Foster, Instructor 
in the Education Department, 
presented a course proposal to 
Council. The course is called 
"Growing up Female: Varieties of 
Education Experience of Women 
in American History." It will be 
an "examination of the role of

Coquillat presents La Mort de Cesar: 
A brilliant farce directed by author 

bv I. in Frarkman '7A Br,..,,. „| i i i. i j , ■ . ."* * 

by Lin Frackman 76 

A unique event happened at 
Wellesley on Wednesday night 
When Mile. Michelle Coquillat, 
\.Mst;int Professor or French, 
presented her play "La Mort de 
Cesar ou Unc Mort Sans 
Histoire." This was one of the few 
limes in the history of the college 
that .i play has been written and 
directed h\ a professor here. 

The play is a farce which 
amuses the audience at ihe same 
time as it forces us to reflect upon 
the philosophical ideas presented 
through the characters and the 
dialogue. All the characters were 
played by students of French at 

In the first act, we see le Poete 
Antoinc alone, trapped in a 
futuristic hospital where one is 
uught how to die. Martine 
Fougcron '75, gave a brilliant in- 
lerprelation of the character An- 
loine. She is extremely talented as 
well as strikingly attractive and 
these attributes combined with a 
perfect French accent made a 
strong impression. She successful- 
ly communicated the despair of 
her situation (which resembled 
that of George Orwell's 1984) and 
her disdain for the mediocre and 
bourgeois ideals of those trying to 
dominate her. 

The chief of the indoctrinators, 
le Professeur Antoine, was ex- 
cellently portrayed by Angela 
Freyre '76. The professor gives a 
speech and presents a play (en- 
titled "La Mort de Cesar ou Une 
Mort Sans Histoire") in order to 
instruct his patients in the right 
«ay of dying. His play is a re- 
enactment of the death of Julius 
Caesar, changed to show how 
Caesar should have died. 

Angela handled this role, which 
appeared lo be the most difficult 
m the entire play, superbly, com- 
municating the ideas behind her 
speech as well as the absurdity of 
the situation. She tried lo con- 
vince the poet Antoine that "Since 
we have finally understood that 
death- is an ecological necessity, 
we must accept it and favor it " 

Brutus, played humourously by 
Carli Mcister '75, worked well 
with Angela to carry the scene of 
Caesar's death from the 
humourous to the absurd. 

In the following scene, we see 
Ihe directors of Ihe hospital in a 
bizarre conference. They are all 
old and decrepit and are afraid of 
losing their power to a group of 
youths who want to take over ihe 
system. Immediately following 
Ihis scene, we see Ihe group of 
young people, planning lo take 
over. However, we see that they 
are just as corrupted by power as 
the old people. They argue over 
who should sacrifice himself lo the 
cause by being the leader. "Our 
cause is right because it is ours," 
they insist. The scene ends with 
everyone fighting to have the 

Both the old characters and the 
young characters were played by 
Vicki Alin '77, Svctlana Petroff 
'78, Caridad Freyre '77, Chris 
Wellens '75. and Willajeanne 
Mclean '77. They were supported 
by Joan Snowdon, '75. who 
played la Directricc Gertrude and 
by Chryss Galassi '75 who played 
la Femme de Charge. They all 
portrayed their characters with 
much talent and enthusiasm. 
Especially remarkable were Vicki 
Alin, who played the leading roles 
in each group as well as le 
Directcur Antoine, and Caridad 
Freyre, whose stage presence and 
poise were outstanding. 

In the next scene, we see what 
appears to be a mirror image of 
the first scene. Instead of le Poete 
Antoinc, we sec la Poetesse Ger-

Irudc. who is also alone in her 
hospital room. She affirms her 
resistance to the demands of la 
direclrice and her desire to live 
rather than simply exist. Camille 
Cozzone '76, gave an outstanding 
performance as Gertrude, com- 
bining idealism and gentleness 
wiih independence and strength. 
Physically, she was perfect for the 
part, embodying youthful beauty 
with contemporary sophistication. 
Her part was especially difficult; 
since Camille was acting opposite 
Marline, who is from France. 
However. Camille maintained a, 
beautiful accent throughout the)

tried lo persuade Gertrude to 
abandon her rebellious ideas. In 
the last scene we realize that 
neither the poet nor the poetess 
have conformed. They finally 
meet each other and realize that 
they are mirror images of each 
other, united in their fight against 
society. They reaffirm their belief 
in life and their desire to begin a 
new life in the final scene by 

We must realize that the most 
important part of a play is (he. 
direction and it is obvious that if 
the direction had not been as 
superb as it was, the play would 
not have been a success in spite of 
the excellence of the acting. Mile. 
Coquillat directed the play with 
subtlety and clarity that is rarely 
seen in a nonprofessional director. 

The timing of each scene was 
perfect and the gestures and ex- 
pressions of the actresses made 
the play work. It is difficult to 
believe that this is the first play 
she has ever directed.. Her atten- 
tion lo the littlest details in every 
scene made the play a totally 
professional production. 

It is remarkable that Mile. 
Coquillat wrote the play as well as 
doing such an excellent' job of 
directing it. The play brilliantly 
communicates the author's 
philosophical position: total 
rebellion against the technocracy 
value system, against the 
bourgeois masters who control 
any society, and against those who 
covet power. She strongly 
emphasized through the play what 
our society will be like in the 
future if we continue to accept 
domination by those whose values 
rest in wealth, power, and elitism. 
The presentation of this play 
was an achievement which should 
be acknowledged and applauded. 
Wellesley is honored lo have had 
the premiere on our campus.

Ann Barrett '75, House Presi- 
dent of Stone-Davis, explained 
that the Wellesley Hunger Com- 
mittee was set up by 50-75 
students who are concerned about 
the famine situation in the world. 
She emphasized Ihe gravity of the 
situation, citing Time and 
Newsweek and the world con- 
ference now jn Rome. 

The committee chose to send 
funds to OXFAM because there 
are low administrative costs, and 
OXFAM is one of the only 
organizations which does not 
work through Ihe governments of 
foreign countries. 

Ann's committee is trying lo 
educule Ihe Wellesley community 
as to the gravity of the hunger 
situation. From Wednesday 
dinner on November 20 to Thurs- 
day dinner on Nov 21, they arc 
encouraging everyone in the com- 
munity to fasl and then to mark 
the end of the fasl with a rice 
dinner in the chapel. These 
programs will be publicized and 
donations will be accepted, bul 
there will be no solicitation. 

Ann also announced thai Ms. 
Cornwall has decided to have a 
spaghetti dinner one night without 
an alternative entree and donate 
the funds to OXFAM. She is also 
planning meals that won't waste- 
food during the day of the fasl. 

Marcy Zwelhng '75. rep from 
Pomeroy, was concerned with the 
people who arc starving in t he- 
United Slates. 15% of the popula- 
tion of the United States is suffer-

'76, rep from Bates, added that 
because we are the richest country 
in the world, it does not mean thai 
we should ignore our own people. 
She said lhal the 15% is an impor- 
tant percent, and if we don't lake 
care of ourselves no one will. 

Susan Challenger '76. Senate 
from Tower, recommended that

tablishing a college of first rank for women who presided in all the 
homes and two-thirds of the school-rooms of the country, he first.

prise. Vassar was the only study for this, and with the aid of the 
artisi-pocl-architccl, Hammct Billings, the majestic College Hall 
rose Then he studied the curricula and methods for teaching then 
prevailing and aimed for an ideal. "If we are like all of the college for 
men. we shall not be what we ought to be," he frequently remarked. 
Al that lime Science had little place in college programs. The new 
learning "shall have place in Wellesley" was his decision. Courses in 
Wellesley College was a pioneer in laboratory sciences for women. Chemistry and Physics were given by lectures illustrated by

Al the lately founded Institute of Technology in Boston, the emi- 
nent genius. Professor Pickering, had devised a set of typical ex- 
periments for students, and had published two volumes of "Physical 
Manipulations". Mr. Durant caught at the idea of students' work, 
and interested Professor Pickering in his desire to introduce this 
work at Wellesley. 

The age of the spectroscope was just dawning, and Miss Whiting 
was fascinated with Physics. In 1876 in her twenties she came under 
the appointment at Wellesley to plan and equip the department of 
Physics. That year of study, going into Boston four times a week, 
had to he accompanied by leaching the first classes in Higher Alge-, 
bra. Trigonometry and Differential Calculus, Tor the regular ap- 
pointee in Mathematics had failed. It was planned that all in the 
course for degrees should have chemistry in the sophomore year and 1 
Physics is I he junior year. The age of elcctives had not yet arrived. 

In planning the building, no account had been taken of the room 
required for students work in Physics, and when Professor Pickering 
came oul to advise, no place seemed available save the loft above the 
chapel, and adjacent spaces in the garretl. Windows were cut 
through the cornice, and one window down to the floor in the 
professors' laboratory, which commanded a surpassing view. A 
system of pulleys was arranged in the lecture room by which the room 
could be darkened. Cases were built in for apparatus, an absolutely 
dark photometer room was arranged and two elegant large 
bookcases sufficed for the beginning of the Physics Library. 

The ordering of apparatus was a task far more difficult than now 
lor there was no concern in this country for manufacturing it, and 
but one or two importing houses, and the European houses did not 
send calalogs. It was a fortunate thing the Philadelphia Centen- 
nial Exposition occurred in 1876. The,ever helpful Professor Barker 

Editors Note: 

Henry Durant is reputed to have said, "Women can do 
the work, I merely give them the chance." This was in- 
deed a radical stand for a man of the 19th century but it 
was a position that Mr. Durant took very seriously. This 
was shown in the early implementation of serious instruc- 
tion in the so called "hard sciences" at the early 
Wellesley College. 

The Physics Department of Wellesley College had 
ils beginnings in 1878 with the establishment of the first 
physics Laboratory in a women's college in the United 
States. It was the second Physics Laboratory in the coun- 
try for undergraduates. MIT had the first. 

Professor Sarah Frances Whiting was the first Chair- 
man of the Physics Department. She held this position 
from 1876-1916. Professor Whiting was also Director of 
the Observatory from 1904-1916. The following history 
of the Physics Department from 1878-1912 was taken 
from the history written by Professor Whiting herself. 
The history as such, not only gives a glance at the early 
instruction of Physics but it also gives the reader a 
glimpse of the times as seen by Professor Whiting. 
Professor Whiting. 

The History of the Physics Department of Wellsley 
College must begin with the Founder of the College, Mr. 

of the University of Pennsylvania arranged to take me (Professor 
Whiting) lo see all the exhibits of apparatus. Here were the first 
Dynamos to be seen, here the first arc lights, the first musical 
telephone and the beginning of Bell's magneto telephone. 

It should be remarked that Professor Cross. Pickering's successor 
at the Institute of Technology when he went into Astronomy at Har- 
vard research Observatory, a most brilliant and daring lecturer 
whose experiments always went off. was infinitely kind in making- 
out lists of apparatus. Mr. Durant looted all the bills, and never 
suggested economy. The only piece of apparatus ordered before I' 
came on the scene was as Mcyerstern spectroscope and gaussmcter. 
Mr Durant asked some professor from the Institute of Technology 
going abroad to order a spectroscope for Wellesley. In due lime this 
first instrument arrived and the box was brought up to my room, and 
Mr. Durant and I were both as excited as children opening a Christ- 
mas box. 

There was one other piece of apparatus with which I always close- 
K associated Mr. Durant. He saw an advertisement of Gasiots Star. 
i triangular piece of black cardboard, three feet on a side lo which 
was fastened a row of splendid vacuum tubes. There was an arrang- 
ment by svhich the whole thing could be revolved after the current 
was turned on from the coil. By persistence of vision a dazzling star 
would be formed, brilliant as a fourth of July firework. I said to Mr. 
Durant thai ii looked sensational, we did not need it — the principle 
of the vacuum tube could be illustrated with what we had. "O let us 
have it" said Mr Durant. "I think the girls will like it," So for all the 
years this was the closing experiment to illustrate, the Kathode ray, 
and I always told the story. 

Depression: the common student "down" 

by Pamela Yu '74 

Editor's Note: 

Pamela Yu. a 1974 Welh-.lcv 
graduate did a study of depression 
al Wellesley as her study for the 
HO under the title "Delving into 
Depression at Wellesley". She 
received Honors for her work and 
the study is currently being used in 
In-Service Training for Heads of 
House and Vil Juniors. The 
following are excerpts from her 

Footnotes and other pertinent 
information can be obtained from 
the Psychology Department. 

Depression is ranked as one of 
today's major mental health 
problems. It has been called "the 
common cold of psychiatric prac- 
tice", Approximately two million 
people, one percent of the popula- 
tion, arc treated yearly. Depres- 
sion is second only to 
schizophrenia in admission to' 

U.S. mental hospitals. It is es- 
timated that Us occurrence out- 
side institutions is five times 
greater than that of 
schizophrenia, and ten times the 
number of cases of depression in 


Although recognized as a 
clinical syndrome for over 2,000 
years, there is still no completely 
satisfactory explanation of its 
causes or its nature. According lo 
Grecnacre. "depression as a 
symptom is as ubiquitous as life 
itself, and in mild degree, appears 
"naturally" as a reaction lo loss 
which need hardly be questioned. 
Ils manifesiations may appear as 
a primary disorder or accom- 
panying a wide range of other psy- 
chological or medical disorders, 
and its by-product suicide, is ihe

among college students. 

Many studies in the past decade 
have focused on the relationship

making recommendations to the Trustees for Centennial honorary

The Committee solicits suggestions, and requests that you include 
"much information as possible about why your nominee, who needs

Responses should be submitted by January f, 1975 to Germaine

campuses. One study found that 
ihe suicide rale at prestigious 
colleges and universities is higher 
than at "smaller, less pressure 
packed" schools. The suicide rate 
for college students is 50% higher 
than that of other Americans of 
comparable age. 

Concerning sex differences 
among, the same population, il is 
estimated that two lo three times 
as many females as males attempt 

The principal hypothesis, based 
on the literature on depression 
and suicide in adolescents and in 
women, was that ihe incidence of 
depression in a population of 
female college students (and at 
Wellesley particularly) should in- 
crease according lo the advancing 
year in school. This hypothesis 
was not supported by the data — 
general levels of depression were 
not found lo vary significantly 
among the four classes according 
to year of graduation from 
Wellesley. On the contrary, the 
freshman class revealed the 
highest relative percentage of 
depression (5% high depression, 
22% medium depression), but 
these figures were not significant- 
ly higher than those of the other 

The infirmary has observed that 
il is freshmen and seniors who 
have mosi utilized their counsel- 
ing services: according to a psy- 
chiatrist at the infirmary, depres- 
sion for ihesc two classes is at- 
tributable mainly to separation 
anxiety — for freshmen, from 

home and familiar surroundings; 
seniors re-experience il in leaving 
college and facing careers, 
marriage and graduate school. 

The variable of academic ma- 
jor, as related to depression levels. 
also revealed no significant 
differences among the three 
categories — humanities, social 
sciences, and natural sciences. 
Tnere was very little fluctuation 
among the mean DI scores, 
although humanities majors 
registered a slightly higher mean 
than did the other two groups. 

Environmental factors in the 
Wellesley experience were found 
lo be significantly related to levels 
of depression, with two factors — 
academic stress and career 
decisions — ranked among the 
two top concerns for the total 
sample and especially the depress- 
ed subgroup. Academic competi- 
tion closely followed this trend, 
being ranked only slightly less im- 
portant by the depression popula- 

There was a significant 
difference between the depressed 
and. nondepressed subgroups on 
the ranking of two factors — 
social pressure and social isola- 
tion. Both were ranked 
significantly higher by the 
depressed than ihe nondepressed 
groups. A large number com- 
plained about Wellesley's 
"cloister-like" atmosphere — the 
"ivory tower syndrome" and the 
lack of spontaniely among

significantly related lo levels of 
depression. Results indicated that 
depressed Ss felt significantly less 
willing to make use of these ser- 
vices than did nondepressed Ss. 
Moreover, a significantly greater 
proportion of the depressed pop- 
ulation were unwilling than will- 

This finding can be interpreted 
— in several ways — for instance, 
it is possible that depressed 
students, by the very nature of 
their depression, feel less able to 
seek oul college services for help. 
That is, they may feel inhibited or 
afraid of seeking help from any 
outside source. Another possibili- 
ty is that people may become 
more seriously depressed because 
they have not fell free to seek help 
for minor problems — which 
could eventually result in the 
magnification and intensification

No Exit: tour deforce theatre 

h> Laura Becker '77 

Mr. Bernard U/.in. Visiting 
Lecturer in the French Depart- 
ment, gave an excellent perfor- 
mance of Sartre's "Huil Clos". 
presented in Jewell last Friday 
nighl. He played the role of Gar- 
cin us well is directed the play. 

Under his dircclion, as a 
prelude to the play, the three prin- 
cipal characters, Garcin, the 
coward, Inez, the lesbian, and 
Esielle, the murderer, die lo 
bizarre music, while bathed in red 
light. Then as (he music changes, 
and pictorial representations of 
hell by Guslavc Dorc are pro- 
jectcd onto the stage, ihc three 
slowly revive 

The bright lighl and sparse fur- 
nishings of what appears to be 
an) room anywhere are the 
background for the resi of the 
play, in winch three damned in- 
dividuals move towards in- 
crcasingly painful self-knowledge, 
and realization of their complete 
interdependence, Each is at the 
mercy of another who will not 
give him what he wants, and can 
only get from that one person 
Inez wants Esielle, Estclle wants 
Garcin. and Garcin wants 
reassurance from Inez. The three 
are in hell, where there is no 
sleep, no darkness, no relief. 

Mr. Uzan played a convincing 
Garcin. ai first persuading the 
audience (hat he is a courageous 
paficist. Later, one is forced (osee 
Garcin as he really is, a coward, 
who in suspicion of danger, look a 
(rain lo Mexico and was shot as a 
deserter. This, along with the ad- 
mission (it his cruelty to his wife- 
makes one believe lhal Garcin is 
almost two persons in one. Mr. 
U/an did an excellent job of jux- 
taposing Ga rein's inner 
cowardliness and outer bravado. 
His constant!) changing facial ex- 
pressions and body geslures, his 
changes in tone of voice and 
rapidity of speech, combined to 
superbly illustrate the conflict 

within him. 

Esielle, played by Elaine Uzan, 
is most upset by the absence of 
mirrors in hell. She chose to exist 
as an ohjet d'.irl and dominated 
others with the power of her 
physical beauty. Her punishment 
is to no longer be viewed as such, 
to be appreciated only by the two 
miserable individuals she is con- 
demned to spend eternity with. 
Ms. Uzan is physically striking, 
and effectively portrayed a selfish 
woman concerned with good 
limes, a place in la haute societe, 
and ample finances. Her beautiful 
exterior covers a hollow interior. 
Ms, Uzan's gestures, her graceful 
movements, her devastating 
smiles, childish pouls. her quick 
boredom and her attempts ai lighl 
social conversation form a convin- 
cing character. 

I stelle is Inez's torturer, because 
Estclle is indifTerenl (o Inez. Inez, 
played by Barbara Smith, is a les- 
bian and a sadist. She exists only 
through the pain she inflicts upon 
her victims. Damnation is not new 
lo Inez. She does not learn about 
herself in the course of the play — 
she knew of her damnation from 
the outset. She waits to repeat 
upon Estclle whal she has so often 
lived. Ms. Smith gave a perfect 
rendition of Inez. Her slump, her 
head tilled forward, a minimum 
of body geslures, her fixed gazes, 
her determined, deliberate 
movements in contrast to the 
more casual or natural 
movements of both Garcin and 
Esielle, belie a strong, determined 
decided woman who makes no 
pretense lo be other than what she 

Inez refuses lo reassure Garcin 
that he is not a coward. Esielle 
will gladly tell Garcin whatever he 
wants lo hear if he will only make 
love lo her. At the same lime. 
Estclle is repulsed by the physical 
and social ugliness of Inez's 

Inez and Esielle desire and are 
frustrated. Garcin continues to 

seek impossible salvation. All 
three reject ihe open door towards 
Ihc end of Ihe play, and their hell 
becomes a chosen one. Even 
before dealh they were not fully 
alive; they existed through 
domination and sadism, treating 
others as possessions. Each now 
finds himself a victim tortured by 

Because of Ihc sparsity of the 
set, it was exceedingly important 
for Ihe three aclors lo be convin- 
cing for there are no other 
characters, few props or other 
diversions with which lo occupy 
the audience. Under Mr. Uzan's 
dircclion, Ihe three made exten- 
sive use of the props and traversed 
ihe small area, often holding a 
pose for minutes while the two 
others speak. It is Sartre's 
dialogue, Mr. Uzan's talented 
direction and the strength of the 
three actors which hold the 
audience's attention. 

Bernard Uzan. as the outwardly 
lough, inwardly sveak and 
cowardly Garcin, Elain Uzan as 
the coquette with the beautiful 
body but superficial soul, and 
Barbara Smith as a hard corrupl, 
damned woman who both knows 
and accepts herself, did excellent 
jobs of communicating the pet- 
tiness, the self-delusion, the selfish 
goals, and the horror of having 
dominated others in the past and 
being sentenced lo torture through 
a denial of what each wants most, 
for eternity. There is no exit.

of their symptoms. 

It should be noted that, in Ihe 
experience of college counseling 
services, depression ranks as I he- 
major problem troubling 
Wellesley students who have 
sought (heir help. The Personal 
Counseling Services has reported 
thai almost 100% of students they 
have seen are depressed: the infir- 
mary, which sees 10-15% of the 
student body annually, regards 
depression and anxiety (and often, 
a combination) as Ihc major 
problems on campus.

Muscular bodies executing 
steps isn'l ballet dancing. 
Nevertheless, Friday night the 
Boston Ballet passed one off for 
the olher — and the audience lov- 
ed it. 

With the exuberance of their 
youthfullness (and a monopoly on 
ballet in Boston) the company can 
at times be irresistably delightful. 
"Graduation Ball" showed them 
off best, capitalizing on their spirit 
and acting abilities in this ballet 
about first romance at a first 
cotillion. It couldn't lose, with the 
exhilarating Strauss music and 
Ihe zest with which the orchestra 
played it 

But even in this perfect show- 
case for Boston Ballet talent, the 
acute limitations of the dancers 
was unavoidable. 

The famous foiete turn com- 
petition, in which two girls vie in 
increasingly difficult whirling 
combinations, should not even 
have been attempted. 

Debra Mili's and AnaMarie 
Sarazin's legs grew limp and ill- 
placed without ever having achiev- 
ed a distinct whipping motion, 
and neither could even keep her 
balance. Trivial but basic 
problems like sickled feel, bent 
knees, sloppy turnout, and not be- 
ing together were apalling in this 
company of supposed national 


What about their artistry? This 
intangible transforming element 
could have been displayed in 
"Allegro Brillanle". an early 
Balanchine piece of choreographic 
simplicily. The uncluttered series 
of basic classical steps without a 
plot requires dancing sharp, pure 
and elegant as diamonds, but 
smooth and sinuously fluid at ihe 
same. time. 

The Boston Ballet couldn't 
manage cither. Nothing was cour- 
sing through those bodies. Muscl- 
ed legs and arms moved without 
moving the audience. Amateurs in 
New York could have been more 
expressive, not to mention more 

"Medea" by Birgit Cullberg 
ended the program, with both 
good and bad dancing and good 
and bad choreography. Ms. 
Cullberg came up with some elo- 
quent motifs of steps thai com- 
municated complexities like ihe 
bond childbirth brought lo Jason 
and Medea. 

Cullberg also came up with an 
unnecessary chorus, insufficient 
dance motivation for Medea's 
jealousy, and a weak ending. 
Elaine Bauer as Medea danced 
better with her facial expressions 
lhan wilh her whole body; sadly. 
Jason by Robert Steele did not 
even seem comfortable wilh his 
large frame. But Shirley

dancing by five-lime U.S. Dance 
Silver Medalists Ann and Skip 
Millier. The high degree of 
maturity of style which they dis- 
play is partly due to their many 
years of national — level com- 
petition and great interest in ice 
dancing as a means of expressing 
their individuality. 

Despite the stellar displays of 
some of the best skaters in North 
America, this year's "Evening" 
still lacked one essential element, 
the appearance of its creator as a 

Kerformer. In October 1970, John 
lisha Petkevitch was a junior at 
Harvard and U.S. Men's Silver 
Medalist. In a visit to Ihe 
Children's Hospital in Boston to 
check oul a knee problem, Misha 
saw all the children confined lo 
bed and wheelchairs and vowed to 
find a way to help them. 
"I thought, well dammit, 
something could be done for these 
kids, using the talents that we as 
skaters have," 

Misha retired from skaling 
after the 1972 Olympics, ending a 
very successful amateur career as 
a ihrce-time U.S. Men's Silver 
Medalist and 1971 U.S. Men's 
Champion. He finds the current 
crop of skaters to be technically 
better and definitely more inter- 
pretative than when he skated in 
ihe early 1970's. He hopes that the 
present emphasis trending toward 
freestyle skaling will culminate 
eventually in the elimination of 
compulsory school figures. 

"There's no question thai Ihe 
Americans are ihe besl free 
skaters in the world, as a total pic- 
ture. There are other skaters who 
may jump as well; there may be 
other skaters who may be more 
ariisiie. but the North American 
skalers are, bv far. Ihc besl in 
both fields. They don't have any 
drawbacks, really, in comparison

big leather belt and red shoes 
("Judy Garland wore these in the

College Club you can probably 
slill smell his after-shave. Though 
he balks al being called an actor- 
author, his book jackets call him, 
"a noted American film actor." 
He began his writing career 
because he was blackballed from 
acting for being "difficult" and he 
could type 80 words a minute.

lears. or u Stale of emotional up- 
set? (4) what are ihe ages of the 
characters — are the females all 
young and pretty, (he men middle- 
aged, executive types? 

In the second part of the panel 
discussions on women in the 
media. Ellen Goodman, a 33 year 
old columnist for the Globe, 
spoke about opportunities for 
women in journalism. "A woman 
has two main options in jour- 
nalism." she asserted. "She can 
either be a super aggressive city 
room reporter, or she can work 
'back there', which refers to the 
woman's page." Work on the 
woman's page consists largely of 
writing arlicles wilh headlines like 
"Suzy Smith Has Nuptials" and 
"Lady Bird Reveals Recipe For 
Stuffed Peppers." 

Ms. Goodman believes that this 
constant perpetuation of dis- 
crimination against women is a 
result of ihe male-dominated 

managerial hierarchy which is 
lotmd in all major newspapers 
Ucwss (he country. At newspaper 
executive meetings, one finds thai 
nearly all ol the participants are 
white males, over age 45. Perhaps 
this is a fundamental factor in the 
reason why newspapers are filled 
from front lo back with arlicles on 
politics, an occupational field 
which is strongly dominated by 
while males, over age 45. To il- 
luflrute this extreme obsession 
with polities. Ms Goodman ex- 
plained, "There are something 
like 4200 regular reporters who 
cover ihe White House, and who 
ire constantly repealing each 
other, tripping over each other, 
and getting drunk together on air- 
Women are mentioned in the 
newspaper only if they are 
beautiful, victimized, married to 
an important man. or if they are 
involved in politics (and women in 
politics are few and far between). 
Ms. Goodman believes thai 
lem, ile journalists have a major 
advantage for advancement over 
wooien in many other professions. 
"A female journalist's physical 
jell does not appear in ihe paper," 
she said, "therefore, she has an 
opportunity to be judged solely on 
ihe quality of her work." 

All of the panel members feel 
dial women who huve "made it" 
in various medial fields are ser- 
ving an important function in the 
w omen's movement by providing 
role models for aspiring young

Adventures of Tapee: Halperin

national security taps: 

— There was only one authoriza- 
tion used to justify a 22-month 
wiretap, despite the requirement 
under ihe 1968 statute that il be 
renewed every 90 das s 

— Neither my name nor that of 
any of those overheard on my 
phone was recorded on the 
"Elsur" (Electronic Surveillance) 
indes where the FBI normally 
records the names of those 

— The records of Ihe tapes were 
kept secret, apart from the regular 
files ol the Justice Department. 

— The records were spirited out 
of Ihe FBI secretly, and hidden in 
(he While House 

We are also suing the C&P 
Telephone Company. They are 
not resisting discovery 
proceedings, as the Justice 
Department has done, so we have 
learned from Ihc formal 
proceedings and from the conver- 
sations with C&P lawyers a good 
deal about how federal wiretaps 
arc actually conducted, The phone 
company actually installs laps for 
ihe FBI as a routine matter. The 
procedure followed is exactly the 
same as lhai which connects one's 
phone lo a telephone answering 
service In m\ case, a line was 

drawn irom ihe local telephone 
office to a central FBI location. 
There a bank ol voice-activated 
tape recorders spun silently 
recording the conversations of oil 
those in the Washington area un- 
der surveillance M\ lap Was pUl 
on at Ihe telephoned request of an 
I Hi agent. No written requesi 
was ever received In Ihe phone 
company. Ils only record of the 
entire operation was made in pen- 
cil and later erased. Il is difficult 
lo imagine a more deliberately 
careless disregard of (he rights of 
one's customers 

Before we have finished, I im 
confident that our lawsuit will 
have established that ihe defen- 
dants in this case, and President 
Nixon, violated my constitutional 
rights and acted in bad faith. In 
the process we are finding oul 
more about FBI wiretapping and 
phone company, complicity than 
have all the congressional in- 
vestigations and study com- 
missions of the past decade. 
Maybe, by exposing such blatant- 
ly, illegal acts and inflicting 
penalties on those responsible for 
them, we can help government of- 
ficials to recall thai Ihc Bill of 
Rights does impose restraints on 
their conduct

The Dance Group got together soon after dinner Monday to warm up 
before Lucy Venable '52, a Professor of Dance and an expert in

her knowledge. Ms. Venable was at Wellesley for the Many Roods

Only j sludcnt-athlele on the 
intercollegiate sports circuit 
knows what it's like to cram into a 
coupe with a half-dozen bodies for 
a trip to Ml. Smilhcliffe College 
in the name of Wellesley athletics. 
She. intimately involved with 
the opposing team, nose to nose, 
spike to spike, stick to stick, then 
somehow gets the impression 
she's up against twice the games 
played, twice the coaching and 
Lwice the money. That just makes 
it all the sweeter when Wellesley 
wins, right? 

Perhaps. Wellesley learns play 
for fun. the fun in exercising and 
competing. The issue lies not in 
ruining, hul in developing com- 
petitive proficiency according to 
i he talcnl and interest of the 
players on a team. 

Here are two issues — getting 
the players lo the opposing school, 
and supplementing their abilities 
wiih coaching and equipment that 
only money can buy. 

The transportation issue has 
been brewing for a long lime. You 
maj well wonder why the sports 
teams, geology students and other 
departments use instructors' and 
students' cars, while a couple of 
seat-filled. truc-Wellesley blue 
vans shuttle back and forth across 
campus full of employees. And 
ne'er the twain shall meet, year in. 
year out. 

Full of ulterior motives for the 
spacious interior of a van, the 
Sport-. Association and the 
physical education department 
surveyed every other department 
on van usage. They got quite a 
response. Eleven groups needed 
the hypothetical vehicle for a total 
of 200 trips, as of May 1974. 

These users supposedly met 
with Joe Kiebala. college business 
manager, in lale September to dis- 
cuss the issue. 

Now it's been narrowed down. 
Nancy H. Kolodny, head of the 

Science Center, and the Science 
Center department heads have set 
their sights on the old EB-Well 
van. which is under Mr. Kicbala's 
domain. She sent him a note 
recently lo refresh his memory of 
the September meeting. 

"He knows we're concerned.'' 
says Ms. Kolodny. "He's working 
on it." She declined lo guess when 
Mr. Kiebala would get back to her 
with something. 

The Science Center Chairmen 
had met with Dean llchman, who 
reportedly said that since the EB- 
Well van was purchased for 
curricular purposes, it ought to be 
available for the above uses. With 
her support, the Science Center 
chairmen, including P.E.'s Linda 
Vaughan because of a human per- 
formance lab scheduled for the 
new building, went to Mr 
Kiebala. Ms. llchman was. unfor- 
tunately, not available for com- 
ment as NEWS went to press. 
Mr. Kiebala deferred discussion 
of the issue to Ms. llchman when 
contacted by me a few weeks ago. 
It seems almost superfluous lo 
discuss intercollegiate and/or in- 
tramural, athletics after assuming 
inlercollegiales need transporta- 
tion. In view of the recent P.E. 
questionnaire, however, that issue 
and the survival of the P.E. re- 
quirement are now at the fore. 

If you answered, and I hope you 
did. you may be part of a statistic 
that becomes a mandate for 
change in the requirement. Ms. 
Vaughan has a few changes in 
mind, I suspcel, and those 
numbers could be her means for 
change. Inlercollegiales don't 
have enough money, and a deci- 
sion will have lo be made in thai 
area also. 

Whoever goes from Wellesley 
lo an evenl of competition or in- 
duction, may she have a commit- 
ment from the college or ihe 
Sports Association on her side. 

Hockey ties 'Cliff e' 

by Caroline Eris man '77 

The Wellesley field hockey 
learn played lo a 0-0 tie with 
Radcliffe last Thursday in its final 
and most important game of the 

Despite Radcliffc's saturated 
field and the cold, damp darken- 
ing day. the game ranked as one 
or the best efforts put forth to date 
by coach Sheila Brown's squad 1 1 
was .i fast-moving, evenly- 
matched game, although 
Wellesley definitely outran the 
Radcliffe team, according to at 
least one Wellesley player. 

The defense seemed spread out 
und ' '"arc organized than in 

previous games, and goalie Meg 
Hall '78 had a couple or nice 
saves. With ihc ball being red up 
to the forward line, these players 
had several breaks that seemed 
sure goals, but the small sphere- 
eluded the Radcliffe goal. 

Special mention should go to 
Chenc German. Pam Farley and 
Holly Wolf, who as seniors have 
finished their rourth season of 
enthusiastic and skillful play on 
Ihc Wellesley field hockey team. 

Because of the 0-0 score with 
Radcliffe. the team seemed a hit 
more satisfied with their final 
record or 1-4-1 as compared to 
their two past undefeated seasons. 
They arc looking forward to a 
pood season next year

The New England Masters 
Swim Club defeated the Wellesley 
Swim Team. 75-41, Sunday, tak- 
ing first in 9 out of 13 events. The 
45-und-up year-old men's team in- 
cluded such talents as Bruce

1956, Ted Haartz, nationally- 
known age-group swimmer. John

Providence lawyer Jim Edwards 
in the 200-yard freestyle b\ 2:21.6

event of the day, coach Sue Tendy 
said Edwards had thought Denise 
would tire. Denise also did flip 
turns, saving precious seconds 
while Edwards did open turns. 

The next event saw Kim Cole 
'77 produce a personal best in the 
50-yard backstroke, 30.4, beating 
63 year-old Larry Smith, national 
recordholder in the 100 and 200. 
by almost four seconds. Kim kept 
the meet close, 18-16, with her vic- 
lory, but Wellesley lost the 
remaining events except for the 
400-yard freestyle, won by Kim in 
4:45.1, and the 100-yard 

backstroke, which Kim took in 
1:05.7, her second-best time ever.

Ms. Burling said her team suf- 
fered from lapses in concentration 
at times, and she also expressed 
displeasure at ihe officiating. She 
said many double hits by op- 
ponents escaped the whistle, sur- 
prising Wellesley. 

Pam BUrleson, Cherie German 
and Bernalyn Jones anchored the 
team, and Pam, Sidonie Walters 
and Karen Weinstein served as 
setters for the front line to spike. 
However, Ms. Burling said the 
learn more often played defensive- 
ly, not setting up the spikes. The 
other players included Helen Fre- 
mont, Nicoletlc Horbach, Seung- 
Loon Moon, Tracey Mumcy and 
Barb Schnorf. 

Skaters make "Evening" a top charity 

by Pam Chin '75 

"We. in our skating. tr\ lo 
create a picture. We use the rink 
as our frame and I he ice as our 
oils. ;md we hope thai you, by 
watching us. will join in our 
'creating'." — Ann and Skip 
Millier. 1974 U.S. Dance Silver 

A gallery >>l ice portraits came 
lo life at Harvard's Watson Rink 
on the nights of November I and 
2. Sell-out crowds cheered and 
applauded as Eliot House ol Har- 
vard University presented "An 
Evening With Champions" for the 
fifth consecutive year 

The show is an ice skating ex- 
hibition which features the lop 
skaters from the U.S. and 
Canada. "Evening" has become 
ihc major amateur skating show 
in New England, and is performed 
for Ihe benefit of the Jimmy Fund. 

Despite a total of 45 minutes in 
delays and the absence of four 
skaters due to medical reasons, 
audiences were thrilled by a fan- 
laslic display ol athletic ex- 
cellence combined with artistic in- 
terpretation. National champions 

and local talents alike captivated 
viewers with iheir dramatic spins 
and acrobatic jumps. 

While all the skaters were well- 
received, two-time U.S. Men's 
Champion Gordon McKellen Jr. 
put on such an excellent exhibition 
of men's skating thai Iwo encores 
were required before ihe audience 
would lei him leave the ice. 

As the son of two former 
skaiing professionals, Gordie 
naturally turned to skaiing as an 
athletic outlet. Always a superior 
technician on Ihe ice, he has now 
added the stylistic nuances thai 
fully complement his highly 
acrobatic skills. This combination 
of artistic sensitivity, coupled with 
athletic talents, including a mind- 
boggling triple-axle jump (3'/> 
revolutions in the air) makes Gor- 
dic .1 definite threat at the World 
Championships this coming 

While Gordon McKellen ex- 
emplifies the athletic approach to 
skating, four-lime Canadian 
Men's Champion Toller Cranston 
is a pioneer ol ihe highly inter- 
pretative movement in skating to- 
day. In his programs Toller ."tries 

(o represent a theme through 
skating on ice" in a subtle union 
of jazz, modern dance and ballet 

"Skaiing has to grow both 
menially and physically and 
technically. Skaiing must be a 
marriage of mind and body." 
Toller's philosophic approach and 
superb technique won him ihc 
1974 World Men's Frccskating 
Championship. Even fellow 
skaters consider Toller an in- 
novator who "is ten years ahead 
of his lime." The crowds at Wat- 
son demanded his return lo the ice 
with standing ovations not twice. 

bul three limes 

It comes as no surprise that 
Toller is a professional paint- 
er in Canada as well. His ar- 
lisiic tcmpermcnl is evident in his 
explanation of his love foi 
skating. "Skaiing is being able lo 
release your tensions and lo 
channel your very basic human 
emotions and feelings oul of your 
body, which I think is a very im- 
portant thing." 

For the fifth straight year, 
audiences were treated lo a 
beautiful demonstration of ice
